Car stolen and burnt out in Galliagh


Police at Strand Road in Derry are appealing for information about the theft and destruction of a car.

Constable Miller, the investigating officer, said: “A grey Vauxhall Astra was stolen from outside a house at Carnhill sometime between 10:30p.m. on Monday October 12 and Tuesday October 13 at 06:15 hours.

“It was found burnt out in the grassy area at Galliagh Park.

“We are linking this to reports of a car rallying around the Glendale area and being driven along a cycle path and to suspicious activity by four youths at Carnhill at about 2:30a.m. on Tuesday.

“We would ask anyone with information about the incident to get in touch with us on the 101 non-emergency number.”
